The PE42525 is a HaRP™ technology-enhanced reflective SPDT RF switch die that supports a wide frequency range from 9 kHz to 60 GHz. This wideband flip-chip switch is pin compatible to the PE42524 and the PE426525. It delivers low insertion loss, fast switching time and high isolation performance, making this device ideal for test and measurement (T&M), microwave backhaul, radar and military communications (mil-comm) applications. At 50 GHz, the PE42525 exhibits 1.9 dB insertion loss and 37 dB isolation. No blocking capacitors are required if DC voltage is not present on the RF ports.
The PE42525 is manufactured on Peregrine’s UltraCMOS® process, a patented variation of silicon-on-insulator (SOI) technology.
